From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
Federal agents this morning raided the home and district office of Sen. Minority Leader Robert J. Mellow (D., Lackawanna), federal authorities have confirmed.
It is unclear what time the raid occurred and what was taken from the two locations.
FBI special agent Frank Burton Jr. would say only: “Based on an ongoing joint federal investigation into alleged illegal activities of Sen. Robert Mellow, those search warrants were executed this morning.”
Mellow could not be reached for immediate comment.
“Sen. Mellow is cooperating fully with all requests and he is willing to provide any information that is deemed necessary to complete their inquiry,” said his press secretary Lisa Scullin.
